WHITBY — Today, Lorne Coe, MPP for Whitby and Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier announced $12,500 in quarterly payments to the Brooklin and Whitby 55+ Recreation Centre’s Seniors Active Living Programs in Whitby.

“This SALC program funding will greatly benefit our senior’s communities in Whitby and Brooklin,” Lorne Coe, MPP for Whitby and Parliamentary Assistant to the Premier. “SALC programs do important work in ensuring older adults are provided with opportunities and resources they need to keep them active and engaged close to home.”

SALCs offer a wide variety of activities and services including fitness, healthy lifestyle and wellness classes, recreation, and social activities, and learning opportunities. These supports are a huge success among older adults and the seniors community.

“Senior Active Living Centres provide incredible supports for seniors,” said Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility. “This investment is improving the health and well-being of older adults, and our government is proud to invest in Seniors Active Living Centres.”

A call for proposals for organizations to deliver SALC programming will open later this summer. In addition to municipalities, other local and community-based organizations such as Legions, Lion’s Clubs, and other social and recreational clubs are now welcome to apply.

“When we work together for our seniors; every month can be a Seniors Month, every day can be a Seniors Day.”
